Grabouw & Elgin Info PDF Print E-mail

Image

Grabouw is the main town of the Elgin valley, one of the most scenic farming areas in South Africa with a beautiful mountain range and diverse fynbos vegetation. This agricultural centre is home to apple and pear farmers and producers of some stunning cold-region wines. Ideal for pinot noir and Rhine riesling, the sauvignon blancs of this mountainous area are some of the best in South Africa. Apart from indulging in the local viniferous fair, sample brandy at Oude Molen, freshly squeesed apple juice or cider from a farm stall.

Fill a picnic basket with freshly baked pies and spread the blanket under a apple tree. Or sample the local cuisine.

An outdoor lover? Take a hike. Literally. Grabouw lies adjacent to the Kogelberg Biosphere reserve,  the Hottentots Holland Nature reserve, pine forests and farms. There are many trails to pick from, ranging from a few kilometers to gruelling ten-day hikes. The new Green Mountain eco trail is a four-day slack packing route traversing the mountain, fynbos and orchards.

Even slower? Play a round of golf, go kajaking or cuddle up with a good book.

If you want to go faster - rent a mountain bike or do a quad bike or motorbike trip. Go on a 4x4 adventure. Rent or bring or own vehicle.

Trips to the surrounding apple and rose farms can be arranged. Visit the open gardens in November to see stunning rose gardens, take a drive in springtime to admire the soft pinks and white of the fruit tree in blossom or take part in the Oude Molen mountain bike race in August. Dress up in fancy dress and join the Jolly Jester race in December.

Slow or fast, lazy or active, wine drinker or gourmand - Grabouw offers it all.
